Add PT to my BP study?

Postby jared6180 » Tue Jul 31, 2012 1:22 am

I am doing the BP online course. They only give 6 PT through the entirety of the course. I was wondering if I should take some PTs in addition to the course video and course hw. I remember reading that being familiar with the test is a big part of preparing for the test, but 6 PTs don't seem like it would be enough.

Yeshhh! I would. I'm also doing a course and have scheduled more PTs along side it. Have you thought about perhaps doing one (in August) every Wed and Sat? At least every SAT morning seems wise. Then, in September pick it up and make sure you do at least two each week (including one of those on SAT). On TLS I've read people that did well (160, 165, 170+) and took between 15-30 PTs, sometimes more. Conversely, some people scored equally as well and only took 4 PTs. I guess it comes down to what you feel will help strengthen your skills and level of mastering the material. I say go for it, whilst making sure you are staying on top of your readings/homework/drilling for class of course :mrgreen:

Outside of the 6 scheduled PTs, there are a number in the Supplement book (and a few more on your student pages). We generally recommend that you schedule those to take yourself; we just give the 6 as proctored tests. Those other tests are definitely ones we expect you to get through on your own.

However, we recommend holding off on them until ~Lesson 12/13. Before that, you won't have a background in all the question types. You'll also be very slow. Getting familiar with the LSAT is definitely an important aspect of the prep process, but getting strategies for all the questions is more important. If you do too many of a certain type before learning the right way to approach it, you might develop bad habits that are hard to unlearn.
